Growing up as a twin, one always answers the same question with the same explanation: "Yes, we are twins. No, we can't read our minds."
But that doesn't seem to be the case with 21-year-old twin sisters Kiran and Nivi Saishankar, who sing as a kind of clairvoyant child prodigy in amazingly pure harmony. Their natural ability to sing raw, flawless harmonies on covers of great songs has helped them perform as TikTok favorites and two of the platform's most talented singers.
The Saishankar twins' TikTok site with over two million followers features tons of incredible song covers. They record Eminem and Rihanna's "Love the Way You Lie", Pink's "Try", the inevitable Squid Game theme "Pink Soldiers" and even the iPhone 13 ringtone.
But it's their breathtaking duet from "The Nights," a track by late dance music legend Avicii that has to be heard by the EDM community. Check out the cover below.
Kiran and Nivi's chemistry and their remarkable pipes are no accident. According to a profile in PopSugar, the twins learned to sing at the age of two – before they could even speak.
The twins were physically unable to speak, and after their mother hired a speech therapist, she tried to teach them an Indian devotional hymn. The twins belted out the song in church just a week later with "perfect pitch and rhythm," Kiran said. "Our parents were shocked," she added. "It's like music is a miracle to us."
"The Nights" appeared on Avicii's EP "The Days / Nights" from 2014 and became a sleeper hit in a deep discography of dance anthems. You can dive back into the original below.
